Music is a sexual sensation of a soul

Music is a sexual sensation of the soul.

The peace in the music is the one final tone —

the other tones tempt us to desire it.

Sometimes they tease, they tantalize,

withholding it—ah, ecstasy,

sometimes excite the spirit by sublime manipulation —

others are more mental in their gentle stimulation.



Discovery of sums is a recovery of balance,

and in music the arrival is a sensuous coitus,

rising to a climax and dissolving there to peace.
